Pros

Great money.
Pride in company.
Fair.
Great benefits.
Reward hard work.

Cons

Since the merge the company says that the joint workforce is one happy family. RJR employees are disappearing and former B&W employees are being kept even though some are not qualified to be in the positions that they are in. The company wants you to be a "china breaker" and proactive, yet if your ideas differ from the person you report to, you are berated and not heard. They want you to do your job and what your manager tells you to do. Don't different ideas and opinions end up brining the best results? If you keep trying to bring up your ideas in a positive manner for purely the right reasons,(most efficient, proven, respected, credible) they will make you disappear because you look more intelligent then your boss. Then once you leave they wil take your ideas and call them their own.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Excellent company if you are applying for an entry level position. Great pay, benefits and ability to gain experience in a difficult business. Get all you can and then move on within 5 years. Goal oriented, not people oriented.

    Pros

    Working in the field is always very competitive and every day is different. Always got feedback from management on my job performance.

    Cons

    Due to it being very competitive, it's was (sometimes) difficult to maintain that work/life balance!...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have always had EXCELLENT managers whom I had tremendous respect for. One exception would be my last manager who was promoted with almost no field experience!

    RJ Reynolds Tobacco Comany is an organization devoted to treating employees like trash.
